My name is Jayne, my blog is on the sidebar as 48 Hour Day and I thought I'd say hello with the first sock I have cast on for this escapade.
Personal challenge - to finish as many socks as possible and to finish at least one pair just for me.
Wool is Trekking XXL in colour 23, 2.5mm needles, in a pattern called "Gingerbread Rib" from a book borrowed fom Miriam (in the sidebar as nrrdgrrl).
Recipient is my 17YO son - if you are so inclined you can find out how big his feet are on the blog.
I cast this on on Monday and am now knitting the heel flap. Once I turn the heel and hit the foot the REAL knitting will start.
I think that will do for now. Hopefully you'll be seeing plenty of "I've finished" posts from me soon. Bye from South Africa.
